I, the teachers I went with, and all the teachers around us laughed hysterically for 2 solid hours! I am so happy I went. We had such a good time! I don't think people that are not teachers would get most of the humor. These reviews about language seem a little odd, as it is a comedy show, not a teacher inservice. Most people would be prepared for that. The Thousand Oaks Center was a beautiful venue. The show was almost completely sold out, however many seats were empty, due to season ticket holders not using or selling their seats, which was a tad annoying. I would have loved better seats, but they weren't available. It was a fun filled experience for my group. Teachers can sure use some humor, and we loved the show!

FUNNIEST COMEDY SHOW EVER
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance last night in Poughkeepsie, NY. Orlando Baxter, Yoder, and Ms. Rob were all wonderful comedians. They had everyone bent over, out of breath, laughing. Extremely relatable, insightful comedy.

THE FUNNIEST TEACHER SHOW
I truly enjoyed the show. I laughed hysterically throughout. After retiring from a 50 year teaching career, I truly appreciated the comedy presented.
Tha comedians were exceptional.
Overall, it was an incredible experience.
However, the Saenger Theater blew it with the lanyard situation. We were not told how to obtain the lanyards on entrance. After the show, there were not enough lanyards to go around. I'm 73 years old and taught for 50 years and HAD BOUGHT 8 TICKETS for the meet and greet and received one ticket (two of us attended). TRIVIAL. YES, BUT VERY IMPORTANTLY TO ME
Pditty2fen from Tysons, VA
The show was very funny and I’m not a teacher. The last guy was the best he was from Florida and hysterical. I really enjoyed the show!!
I. T. from Riverside, California
NOT AS EXPECTED
We had some good laughs, but I was expecting more jokes about teaching and what we experience. I did not expect to hear explicit sexual jokes. More funny jokes about experiences like the slogan says : you can't make this stuff up!

FUNNY WITHOUT THE USE OF F WORD
This tour was disappointing from the standpoint of the frequent use of f word. It was unprofessional in the sense that so many educators were present. This is not the everyday language use of most educators, so why was it needed to be funny? All of the teachers that attended with me were very uncomfortable. A good suggestion is to clean up the comedy act!
Dee Hayes from Washington D.C.
Many of the jokes (content) were/ was funny! The thing that kind of ruined it was excessive profanity, especially f this, f that constantly. This was in Tysons,VA. I have taught in Ft. Lauderdale, Albuquerque, Ohio, and now the Washington DC area. NONE of the teachers I know ever cuss like this -ever (not in school nor after school). I will not attend another one unless I hear that they have cleaned up the act.
Disappointed Virginia teacher from Northern Virginia
We attended the show at Tysons Capital One Hall. While it started slow….there was some funny material. It wasn’t outstanding by any means, but it was entertaining, until the gay guy came out and the F word was used more than the word “teacher” or “student.” His act had no amusing anecdotal stories about teaching—- his act centered around his being “F*$#@¥. Totally disgusting. Two of us attending have been in teaching for over 25 years and we can recall so many funny stories between us that are funny without being crass. Please rethink your material.
Junetta from Lexington, Kentucky
I was so excited to go to this. I actually gave about $100 for tickets. It was a total waste. The person I wanted to see was Gerry Brooks. He was on stage about 10 minutes. Tell Williams was absolutely horrible! He dropped the Fbomb about 50 times in his 20 minute portion. Not acceptable to me! Teachers don’t appreciate this language. It would have been much better without the language.

SURPRISINGLY NOT WHAT I EXPECTED
So, I'm acquainted with BT through their facebook page and funny teaching videos. My wife and I are both teachers and appreciate their online humor, so this seemed like a good "Date Night" event. To be honest, I was pretty shocked. Only about 25% of the comedy was related to teaching, and when it was, it was mostly obscene and vulgar. Multiple rounds of humor about cum/semen. The f-word used like it was going out of style. The final act was a guy from Florida who talked for 10 minutes about "eating ass." This is NOT what I was expecting. Wasted $140 a ticket on garbage, sadly.
JG from AC, NJ
There were some really funny moments throughout the show, but the over-use of vulgarity of all kinds was just over the top. It sadly took away from what has amazing potential. Teachers follow the site because we relate and can find humor in the ridiculousness of things that happen throughout the course of a day or a career.
And please remove Taylor completely. Her entire set bordered and then launched into the realm of pedophilia and disgusting sexual humor at the expense of "children in her class". Please still remember, teachers are often parents as well. We struggle enough with public perception... there's lots of hilarious teacher comedy that doesn't require the profanity or sexual content.
Unhappy Medford from Medford, Massachusetts
BORED TEACHERS COMEDY TOUR IN MEDFORD
This comedy night was the worst comedy event we have ever attended. I would say this was more of a disgrace to the image of all teachers. We went out to diner with some friends which was excellent, then we headed over to go see the Bored teachers comedy tour in Medford Ma anticipating having a few laughs. It was scheduled to start at 7:00pm. but it didn't start till 7:20 pm. then starting with complete nonsense and trying to get the attention of other teachers in the audience to scream and make noise. Then it started and it went downhill from there. The first act was more about how he is gay and some family issues with his father over it. Nothing was funny in the whole act. Never mind the ridiculous outfit. We all said this was the worst but let's see if the next act gets better. Another slovenly dressed teacher/comedian came on the stage and WOW just when we didn't think it could get any worse, we all looked at each other and said were out of here.
I really hope they change their careers for their sake and the students they set an example for each day. I hated to say any of this. Save your money and skip this disaster.

BORED TEACHERS WAS OFFENSIVE AND BORING AND DISAPPOINTING
The trailers for The Bored Teachers Comedy Act didn’t include filthy language. It also had lots of funny jokes about teacher humor, parent conferences. This show in Pensacola could have been so much more entertaining if the presenters had stuck to teacher jokes and excluded filthy language. I wish I had read other reviews that say the same things I have said. I WOULD NOT have paid my money and gone. I left after the second person.
Jt from San Francisco, California
BORED TEACHERS TOUR AWFUL IN SF
One of the comedians, a woman, was great, one was good, guy from Florida, , two were very disappointing. First of all it started 20 minutes late. Next the two awful comedians used very little teacher content and a lot of profanity. I didn't want to hear about their grandmothers or non-teacher stories. especially when there's so many good education stories out there. feel ripped off and want my money back. Love the people on the boredteachers website but skip the comedy tour. Only one out of four were currently teaching. Where was Jerry Brooks?
JMH from Phoenix, Arizona
Attended the September 16 performance at Phoenix Orpheum Theater. First (and this is not the fault of the performers), I was in the side section, Row 8. When I first arrived, I thought this would be great. It was not because, in this area of the theater, there is very little slope, so not able to see over the heads of people in front. Also, the acoustics were terrible, making it very difficult to hear everything the performers said. Also, a video was shown at the beginning, and that, too, was almost impossible to understand what was being said. Was supposed to start at 7:00, but didn't until 7:20 because people were still coming in from downstairs bar area. Even after it did start, people still came in and were very loud. Doors should close at time that performance should start. Plain and simple, the performers were not funny, and we left after 3 of them. Many people were laughing, but because they laughed when nothing was even being said, we assumed it was just people laughing just to laugh and not at the performers. All in all, save your money!
Nathan Herring from Indiana
Great example of why the public is losing faith in us as educators. Crude, makes us look petty, unprofessional, and not concerned about our students. You should be ashamed of yourselves, not applauded or laughed at!
Karen Folden from San Antonio, Texas
DISAPPOINTED AND EMBARRASSED
I am a recently retired teacher/librarian who spent 44 years in K-12 schools. My sister who was not an educator bought tickets for me, herself, and her husband who is a retired pastor. I was shocked at the language. I heard more swear words than I heard in all my years of teaching. None of my colleagues use profanity to that degree in or out of school. I had expected to hear anecdotes about teaching. Over 75% of the content had nothing to do with school. It's no wonder the public has such little respect for our profession. How sad that this was the best you could find. Truly a waste of time and money. If I could have given 0 stars, I would have.
Lorraine from Greenville, South Carolina
CRUDE AND OFFENSIVE
My friend and I, both teachers, were absolutely shocked at the vulgarity and the crude language in this show, all totally unnecessary. The teaching field has rich fodder for humorous stories, but these people just wanted to focus on the vulgar. Very, very disappointing.
